To be successful at cycling and endurance sports, you require not only physical strength but also intense focus and concentration. Yogeur, by Nicole Moerig, a former professional cyclist, is yoga designed for athletes with a focus on performance benefits, personal wellbeing and longevity. We provide personal & group yoga classes and workshops to recreational, age group and professional endurance athletes and teams. Our teaching is centred around integrating a mindful approach to life, career, training and racing, based off Vinyasa flow yoga and a restorative practice. Our philosophy is centred on strength, focus, flexibility and mindfulness. Enlighting athletes on the benefits of slowing down. But also educating them about their bodies and the imbalances that can occur physically from endurance sports. How to identify these imbalances and how to isolate and correct them with yoga. Regardless of ability, we provide a range of progressions for each movement so that no matter your level of experience or flexibility, you can enjoy the advantages of adding yoga to your training.
Yogeur provides strength, stability and core development, focusing on isolation and activation of vital muscle groups.
Yogeur helps athletes to bring more balance to their body, improve performance and assists with injury prevention.
Yogeur employs strategies to help with concentration, enabling athletes to maintain mental clarity and calmness.
Yogeur ensures your brain is as well looked after as your body. Slowing down provides a mental refresher.
It is now commonplace for athletes to integrate other physical activity, even when healthy, to benefit from a holistic approach to physical performance and mental wellbeing. Cross training helps bring more balance to the body and enhance athlete performance. The functional movement of yoga can be used to complement your training, help your body correct imbalances, enhance flexibility and prevent injury. Yoga also gives athletes the mental tools to deal with the pressures of competition, emotional highs and lows and the demands of modern lifestyle. Taking a moment to slow down allows us to enrich our lives and prevent wear and tear on the body’s immune, cardiovascular and skeletal systems.
